Hi everyone this is my first post and because of this question I found you.
I am in England and a new spinner and loveing it. I use a drop spindle. I ordered some jacobs wool for spinning and its a lovely dark brown. Its washedc carded and all the fibres are long and in one direction. Now while Its lovely to work with there is a slight smell of sheep. I didn't expect it to have a smell at all other than wool. The smell became stronger when I set the spin in water but has now become faint again. Is this usual?
